Flag herding.gif
Herding is one of the many skills in Ultima Online. Herding allows the player to direct the movement of any tamable creature, including dangerous monsters. They can either be moved to a specific location or made to follow the character indefinitely. There is no limit to the number (as long as the skill is high enough). For maximal control over the herd, Animal Lore and Animal Taming are absolutely essential.

Note that the herd will not travel through a moongate and the skill Peacemaking will dissolve the herd, if used as area-effect. A particularly sneaky way of using this skill is, to use the skill Stealth to stay hidden, while herding dangerous monsters to other players.


Training of course involves usage of the skill. After first training up to 30 skill points, practical use is needed. Here is a list of what animals should be herded for maximal training effect.
